Bug Fix Advisory gnutls bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0319-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-02-21
Last updated on: 2012-02-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)
CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2006-7239

Details

Updated gnutls packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The gnutls package provides the GNU Transport Layer Security (GnuTLS) library,
which provides a secure layer over a transport layer using protocols such as
TLS, SSL and DTLS.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Under certain circumstances, a NULL pointer could have been dereferenced in
the GnuTLS library. This caused TLS clients, such as the rsyslog utility, to
terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. This update adds a test
condition ensuring that a NULL pointer can no longer be dereferenced and TLS
clients no longer crash. (BZ#789041)

All users of gnutls are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug. All applications linked with the GnuTLS library must be restarted (or
the system rebooted) in order for this update to take effect.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259
